tLb – a framework for rapid max patching


tLb is a collection of abstractions to simplify the building of applications with MaxMSP. Its architecture is based in parts  on the Model-View-Controller design pattern. Inside you find abstractions to deal with the pattr system,  audio effects like frequency shifters, phase vocoder, granular based effects and more. The Jitter department contains video mixers, a movie grid, delay and image transformer. Whenever possible the video processing is done with OpenGL. (N.B. this is momentarily broken under Max 6.)

Networking is done with UDP, and Bonjour is used to connect clients. Two applications are included: LSD for Live Sound Design and LVD for (you guess it) Live Video Design. These applications were tested and used on stage.

Finally the framework should show ways how to write patchers in a clean and consistent manner.

I downloaded the sources, and it says ‘pattrexists’ is not found. How…. existential!

Thoughts? I’m using max5, is that the problem?

A lot of great tips and techniques in these patches either way. Thanks!!!

The OSX version of Jeremy Bernstein’s pattrexists disappeared from his Toolbox page (?!?). I have added it to the downloads on my site.
